Everyone Worth Knowing – Wikipedia
Shaken by the news that her best friend Penelope has gotten engaged to Avery, who neither she nor Penelope’s other friends think is right for her, Bette Robinson suddenly quits her job at UBSthe investment banking firm where she has worked in the five years since she and Penelope graduated from Emory. However, she does little to find a new direction in life until her uncle Will, an aging nationally syndicated entertainment columnistintroduces her to event planner Kelly. While she does find Philip somewhat attractive, much like the heroines of the romance novels she secretly indulges in, and the association becomes of knoaing benefit to her in her new job, she is later drawn to Sammy, a bouncer at Bungalow 8 who turns out to be from her hometown of Poughkeepsie and harbors ambitions of being a chef.
The two connect on a trip to Istanbuland Sammy’s culinary skills impress Bette’s parents, former s radicals, on a Thanksgiving trip everhone to Poughkeepsie.
But he, too, is tied to a wealthy socialite, and dreams of escaping the everyoje life to open a small restaurant. Bette, meanwhile, finds herself growing distant from Penelope and her other friends, and must choose between the person she once was and the one she is becoming. There is a reference in a nightclub to “that ugly little lesbian troll blogger who can’t stop writing about how much blow she does every night” which was believed to be a reference to Elizabeth Spiers of Gawker Mediain retaliation for a disparaging remark she denies making about Weisberger.

This has to weisbedger with the success of The devil wears Prada. The cover art in the Netherlands is also very similar to the movie’s poster.
